The Zondervan Thompson Chain Reference NKJV Bible

The Zondervan Thompson Chain Reference NKJV Bible June 13, 2024

The Zondervan Thompson Chain Reference NKJV Bible, premium goatskin leather cover edition is an absolute treasure.

Out of all the premium Bibles I own (17 currently), I rank this one in the top three.


From the moment you pick it up, you can feel the quality oozing from this Bible. The goatskin cover has an incredibly soft and supple feel, yet it’s durable and will age beautifully over time, developing that rich patina that proves it’s a well-loved Bible.

The leather cover isn’t just for looks. It lays flat effortlessly no matter what page you open to, making it a pleasure to read and study from.

The paper is an off-white tone that is gentle on the eyes and allows the crisp, dark text to stand out crisply. Despite being packed with comprehensive study aids, the Bible isn’t overly thick or bulky.

Of course, the real gem is the Thompson Chain Reference system itself. This is one of the most extensive cross-reference study tools ever developed.

At a glance, you can instantly connect any subject, concept or theme to every other place it is mentioned in Scripture via an ingenious system of references and numbering. This opens up the Word of God in a beautifully interlinked way.

On top of the chain references, you also get book outlines, maps, a concordance, and extensive supplementary study notes covering archaeological data, word definitions, historical context and more. It’s a complete package for serious students of the Bible.

But the quality craftsmanship and premium materials elevate the Zondervan Thompson Chain Bible far beyond just being a comprehensive study tool.

This is a Bible made to be treasured as a family heirloom to be passed down for generations.

Whether you want a robust study companion or a lifelong ministerial Bible, this goatskin Thompson Chain edition is an exquisite and worthwhile investment.

Highly recommended!
